Pete Droge of the Thorns

I hope there are some people here familiar with his work. He just released a new solo album yesterday (7/15) and after just one night with it, I can already declare it amazing! Could possibly be his best.

It kind of snuck up on me, with him doing the Thorns thing and all. It's his first solo album in a number of years and he self produced and I think even self released it. But it has wide distribution so you should be able to pick it up at most all stores. I highly recommend it.

You can hear samples of it on amazon.com.

Peace-
Jeff

I had never heard of him before the Thorns. Is he, like Sweet and Mullins, primarily a solo artist or has he been in other bands?

As far as I know he has always been a solo act, Necktie Second is a very good CD, definitely roots rock for the most part. I remember him doing something with Pearl Jam way back when but I cant remember what it was. If you like the Americana, Alt sound I think you will like Necktie.

Most famous for "If You Don't Love Me (I'll Kill Myself)" featured in the movie "Dumb And Dumber".

Find a Door is really great. So is Necktie Second. He stumbled a bit on his third - Spacey and Shakin, bit it still has some amazing songs. This new one is up there with his best. I consider him a more rockin' Gram Parsons of the new age.

He also has a small camio in Almost Famous. It's him and Elaine Summers in the Hyatt room playing as they walk by. Kind of a nod towards Gram and Emmylou.

Peace-
Jeff

Find A Door and Necktie Second are two of my all time favourite albums... great great songwriter!
